what's a citizen life's worth!

"what's a citizen life's worth"
i am going 2 refer 2 u a blog by a great writer and critic of our time chetan bhagat......

i read his blog few days ago titled "what's a citizen life's worth" and the same article came in some editorial of times of india.....i dnt remember d date....
here iz d link of tht blog-

http://www.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Home/Opinion/Edit-Page/Whats-A-Citizens-Life-Worth/articleshow/6064826.cms

and i wud advice u 2 go through it once b4 reading my blog......
he has written this blog 2 highligt d bhopal gas tragedy which iz one of d most hyped tragedy of our time......
i m going 2 point out few "rights" n "wrong" in d context of his article........


WHAT IS RIGHT:The company Union Carbide that owned the plant,is held responsible.
WHAT IS WRONG:the same union carbide holds numerous plants all over the world..no other accident took place there..So its not a fault of mr Anderson rather the indian heads of union carbide...which breached all the safety measures given by the company to make way for some profit.

WHAT IS RIGHT:andersen was given a bail after giving 35000 rs.
WHAT IS WRONG:he wasnt present in india at the time of accident,.....he came to india after the assurance that he will not be arrested in india.nw wen he comes u arrest him...is it rite? apart from that there are so many killers who get bail why shouldnt he.moreover its the court who decides this....and demanding his extradition nw is ....dont u thnk utterly futile ....he is atleast over 85 yrs...... wat will indian court do after his extradition.........again a case will go on for atleast 7-8 yrs ...by then he will be dead....and 25 yrs hav passed had the extradition been demanded at the time of incident us govt could hav considered it ...US has one of the most transparent extradition norms...mind u.

AND I WUD LIKE TO POINT OUT ONE MORE POINT.....
n pls dont consider any political bias in d same...........
".people who blame congress responsible are totally wrong...it cannot be completely held responsible.....why.....1) because after the accident BJP was in power for more than 10 yrs.... if it wanted it culd hav done a lot in this matter .2) the case was going on in the district court of bhopal ....madhya pradesh and its chief minister is shivraj singh chauhan ..of BJP and before that uma bharti also belonginging to BJP at that time...For wat congress is responsible of is ..lack of stringent decisions at the time of accident when rajiv gandhi was tha pm...just came into power for 2 months or so...after the death of indira gandhi....
."

WHAT IS RIGHT:US charged BP HEAVILY FOR THE ACCIDENT.
WHAT IS WRONG:did they arrest someone? iam not sure!.... u hav to check for it......and ......u cannot ask the same amount of money even if the same incident had taken place in india .....because one has to prove the worth of damage done to an individual ..what was his earnings wat his life expectancy etc etc...on this depends the succour he receives...for a person working in the factory for ten thousan a month and is of 45 ysr od age cannot ask for 100 crores if he gets handicapped....and this not a rule set for an international company...it is also valid for the indian companies...and do we knw hw much india has already got from the union carbide?....iam not sure............... are u?....the thin is it has not gone in the rite hands....merely getting the andersen back wont serve.


SO MY BASIC POINT IS THAT CONVICTING ANDERSON WONT DO ANY GOOD 2 US OUR NATION. ITS A REAL FAULT OF OUR POLITICAL PARTIES IN COMMON.......
AND AGAIN THIS HOOPLA IS CREATED BY OUR POLITICAL PARTIES FOR THEIR POLITICAL MOTIVE......

SO GUYS BEWARE OF DES RHETORIC'S..... THEY DONT BEAR ANY WELFARE MOTIVE....
THEY R JST MEANT 2 EXPLOIT US......

and at last i wud like 2 thank a frnd of mine -tejas......for giving some valuable insights.....
actually he hs witnessed d whole incidence.

thats all 4 nw....waiting 4 ur valuable comments......
